A mouthful of a wine, intense and unctuous flavours of citrus and stone fruit, wild honey and butter. Rich, imposing and large-scale. Blockbuster white burgundy. Morgeot is a big vineyard that has the propensity to make very full and sometimes dull and heavy wines, however Caroline’s parcel is from the higher part of the Morgeot on a slope where the wines show more finesse and distinction, this parcel is called Les Petits Clos, which will now be used on the label from the 2011 vintage onwards.
